WHY OKLAHOMA IS CBEAT.
So many thinipt have happened before
nnd since the advent of statehood to em-
phasize the flrentnosB of Oklahoma that
jKople back east and In other directions
are wondering what really makes Okla-
homa great. Aside from its size and
location in the heart of the republic mak-
ing It absolutely the best In point of
climate resources and accessibility which
in themselves liave the elements of
splendid commonwealth it has another
and a far more jioteiit factor in the
achievement of its brilliant success be-
fdre it has reached the nge of one year
from its somewhat p'-my birth last
The real greatness of Oklahoma may
very properly be attributed to the spirit
of its citizenship. Not long ago men
spoke and wrote of the Western spirit as
peculiar to the unsettles! west and south-
west of n generation ago. That term Js
also obsolete and It is now the Oklahoma
Bpirit as exemplifying the dauntless
courage the splendid prowess nnd the
marvelous originality of the prevailing
thought that has shaped Oklahoma in the
Men who pushed their way into the
wild and woolly west a generation ago
were called pioneers' Yea for more than
u hundred years these restless wanderers
have pressed into the unsettled forests
and trackless prairies of our country and
raising the standard of freedom and self-
itovyrujj'i'nt have been the real exponents
of expaiiKiftM that have made e nation
great on the American continent and be-
yond the sens. v f ' .
The creation of Oklahoma was the cul-
mination of a century and a third of
8tate buikling. It wfts a part of the
movement of a great race of men the
inivst masterful race of all history. No
human hand can stop or stay the push
arid enterprise of the American people
and no region can remain a wilderness
'when they undertake to subdue it.
The glory of Oklahoma is the J dauntless
spirit of her people f h- million and a
half of jH-opie who rose up and demanded
statehood from a hostile administration
would build a great state in any quarter
of the habitable globe. These copte it
set down in the wastes of Africa would
erect a .state and cherish and nourish the
principles of human liberty and there
establish the highest form of civilization
The very highest form of patriotism is
pride in and love for ones state. Where
is the man or woman in Oklahoma who is
not already proud of the state. The man
wko would be ashamed of being an Okla-
humans would be impervious to the pre-
! vailing thought that actuates her citizen-
ship. Men of bruins ami character front the
whole United States have nstk'.ibled them-
selves here to erect a model state. When

Male constitutions. Oklahoma does things
differently. The older common wealths
now wait to see how Oklahoma will do

Oklahoma is great l cause the most
alert the.widest awake ami the brightest
people in the world have determined to
make her so.

It is very important for the press of the
state to emphasize this feature of the suits
filed in order to disabuse the minds of
prospective purchasers of the idea that
the action of the government further com-
plicates matters. Few buyers would ac-
cept a deed when the records show an
order of the court setting aside all these
alleged transfers and to set them aside is
the object of the suits now filed. Musko-
The Chieftain desires to express its ap
preciation of thesplendid response the peo
ple of Vinita have made to its proposition
to again place a daily edition of the paper
in the field. The owers of the paper are
but showing their confidence in Vinita
when they are willing to f"t their money
and lubor into the production of a daily
paper. We expect to give the paper cir
dilution enough .from the first issue to
justify the advertisers in spending their
money for space in its columns. Money
spent for advertising Is en investment-
and unless it pays the sane business man
will not buy it. If we print a newspaper
that will reflect the standing of the town
commercially and socially: at home and
abroad we ure willing to risk the venture
tnat it will meet with roper support.
Vinita has a larger population than it had
when the present owners conducted the
daily before and the country adjacent has
ten families now to where it had one
when the daily was started some ten
years ago. Through our four rurul routes
we expect to reach practically all the
people who do business ia Vinita. The
Chieftain will have on its imy roll a num
ber of men who will spend practically all
their wages right here in Vinita. The
institution that furnishes employment for
a dozen or more ieople tli. year round is
north while. We Invite the business
people of Vinita to use our advertising
columns' if you think it will yield suflicient
returns to justify the expenditure. If you
don't think it would pay you. as a sensible
business mm you should not make live
The Auditorium company hu created a
beautiful park out of a stretch of rmigh
railroad right-of-way that has always
been an unrightly place where twisted
scrap iron old broken down wagons cess-
pools and weeds ran riot. Into a veritable
beauty spot with trees flowers shrubs
grass and a splendid fountain that plays
and sparkles in the sunshine. As a mat
ter of right and just appreciation the city
of Vinita ought to stand the expense of
five or six hundred dollars a year to keep
it up now that it has been created.
If the carrier should drop a copy of the
Daily Queftain at your door for a few
evenings without yohr ordering it don't
be alarmed. It is only that you may see
it and mayhap subscribe and have it con
tinue regularly. On the rural routes lead
ing out of the city in every direction
samples will he mailed at first to be fol-
lowed by a representative of the paper.

Augustus Ceusar made Rome famous ull
over the known world and gave tier an
imperishable name ju.st by building a few
roads and seeing to it that they all lead
to Koine. The construction of county
road from Vinita in all directions set
with shade trees on either sale is an
enterprise thut not only the city but the
country us well may pnperly Join in.. If
all the mods leading to aiul from the city
for a distance of from five to ten miles
were graded and the stream spaniW hy
handsome Iridges and the rood sik set
with elms in ten years Vinita wisjld be
the Carthage of Oklahoma. Tlie enhance-
ment 'if county values would be ss ureat
in proportion as would city vsifcu-s. A
well kept farm with slmde trcen along its
approaches will lring more money than a
In'tter farm without the ivdvantages.
Would it not lxiy Vinita tu construct one
smh highway for. say five miles as a
model? The same may b said of our
streets and avenues within the town lim-
its. The writer favors the macadamizing
of two avenues throughout the length of
of the city as model driveways. One on
the south stile say Canadian avenue from !
the Hull creek heights on the east to the
city limits on the west side. The roerty
owners along the street would doubtless
stand the bulk of the expense. On the
north side Setptoyah avenue is the longest
continuous highway in the city and with
a good bridg" over Bull creek a street full
two miles in length could tie built.

Electric Light Ice and; Power Co. return
ed Saturday night from Guthrie where he
attended a meeting of! the electric light
men of the wtate pursuant to a cull by
the state board of equalization. Mr Lah-
man says the light men were about the
angriest bunch he has met with in a long
time. Hoth Governor Haskell and Attor-
ney General West addressed them but
as Mr. Lahman says these sjetches were
simply an unburdening of . the grief of
these two oflicials against each other and
that the light men go; nt satisfaction out
of them. Mr. Haskell assured them at
wane length of the intention of the ad-
ministration to deal with ull fairness to
to the business interest of the state.

been out of the newspaper business for
atxmt two nnd one half years and our
deliberate judgment now is that Vinita is
a better town than formerly. There is
more doing more in contemplation and
tfJtfiaVure is larger with'V'VSsibiliiies f"r
good. The Chieftain ventures thVirnphecy
that we are on the eve of a treinei.ius
upward and onward movement that ail
the southwest wiil share and that Vinit:
for once will get her share. Within threi
months this city will have complete!
seven blocks of new pavement and nior
than eight miles of cement and bric k side-i
walks beside ntiout ten thousand dollars
of sewer construction. It has nearly
broken the hearts of a few good people to
gee this expenditure that looked to them
hke wanton waste but even they the
knot ker are coming around alright.
A group of men were seated on' the
shady side of the street. They were talk-
